Where's the snow?Just look at it and say out loud Whoops, I will know if you didn't
I've read about what eventually happened to that tree, but can't remember if it was in Bell's or Vine's book. I seem to recall something about vandalism.Interesting fact:
When they filmed the Christmas special 'Whoops' it was summer so to make look like winter, they cut off all of the leaves of the tree which was located outside the café!
I don't know where the tree is now though. It must have been cut down years after the episode.
I remember the tree outside the cafe watching early episodes but always remember the tree being quite small.I'm pretty sure it was the tree outside of the café. In the very early episodes, there was definitely a tree outside Sid's café but when I read Bell's book, I don't recall reading about a tree outside Nora and Compo's.
If I remember right the crew wanted to remove the tree but it was a historic one so all they could do was distract someone while the trimming went on. I seem to recall that Alan said that no one from the town noticed the difference. It would be interesting to know why the tree was considered historic.I believe in fact it was BOTH!
There was a historic tree near Nora's somewhere near the bridge, which was in the way of the camera in the early days before they used big camera cranes there. So someone either chopped it down completely OR severely trimmed it, I cannot remember which.
The tree outside the café I think has been removed/replaced several times.
